Your Concert Bucket List

I have been privileged to see virtually every one of my favorites bands/artists spanning all genres, but I'm sure I'm no different in that I haven't had the chance to see certain acts live. It's kind of like you are playing beat the clock especially in regard to the age of certain bands and how much longer they might be around.

U2 for me is the biggest one I want to scratch off my list.
Paul McCartney would be nice.
Buddy Guy...he was 3 hours away not too long ago but I couldn't make it
RHCP as well....though my interest in them has waned in recent years

So who are you waiting to see?
All I have to do is revel in the everyday....then do it again tomorrow

They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong...I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all

    U2 would be good. Two of mine would be Bruce Springsteen and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    I gotta say it......the Stones. I always manage to miss them. I think in the coming years they should pull out their ol' rockin chair's and stools, return to their roots, and become an old blues act. They even mention this in the Shine a Light doc.

    The White Stripes would've been nice.

    Oh, and The Breeders!

    So who are you waiting to see?

    Definitely make sure you see McCartney before it's too late. It's expensive but well worth it.

    Mine would have to be Dylan although he's not really the same anymore, Faith No More if they ever decide to do more shows, Pink Floyd if they ever stop bickering, and Portishead would be nice.

    The rest are pretty much checked off the list.

    We've got Choctaw indian casinos just down the road from here and when the second casino failed they turned it into The Arena and they've been hosting plenty of good, big-name shows. There was an article in the newspaper about it Sunday and how they feel like there is no limit to who they can get to play there....top on the wishlist being Springsteen, McCartney and Elton.....I've seen Bruce but to think he and/or Paul might play 20 minutes from my house is kind of hard to imagine. Of course the acts currently lined up are mostly country but I'm glad to hear they are looking to draw better stuff

    There are not too many left on my list. Hum would have to be my main one though. Also GNR, Butthole Surfers, Them Crooked Vultures, and David Gilmour. I got to see Waters do The Wall last year and seeing them separate is as close as I'm ever going to get to seeing Pink Floyd live.

    Neil Young is the only one left on my list. And that will be satisfied in April.

    Even though I love The Beatles and Stones, I have no desire to see McCartney or Mick and gang. I am content with the classic albums.

    When i was on vacation to california in 1995. I cut my vacation by 1 day so i could be home in time to scotland to see the Foo Fighters in glasgow (which was their first tour and an amazing show).
    However I discoverd while in LA that on the day I was leaving, Drivin' n' cryin' were playing the house of blues in hollywood(i think) that night.... how bummed was I, bloody foo's.
    On a good note i did manage to catch our boys 2 nights in san diego.
